Dust storm blow for PM in Afghanistan.
He had been due to make a moraleboosting trip to Camp Bastion in Helmand province, where most British forces are based.
But his RAF flight was forced to divert because a dust storm caused the Camp Bastion runway to be shut for the first time this year.
Instead, his plane had to land at Kandahar airfield, where only a small proportion of 9,500 UK troops deployed in Afghanistan are based.
